Brian Osbourne uses the Twitter handle Coach_Osbourne because he is so dedicated to teaching sports to students. Osbourne serves as an assistant coach for the Trinity basketball team in Camp Hill, Penn. and assistant boys soccer coach at Lewisberry’s Red Land High. He loves both jobs, but soon may be known for something far afield from prep sports: He’s about to become a contestant on the impending season of the Bachelorette.
Osbourne will have plenty to overcome, but he that’s nothing new for the high school coach. According to MaxPreps, he was thrown into the metaphorical fire during Trinity’s basketball team, added to the coaching staff just before the start of the 2013-14 season. Trinity finished just 12-13, but did win a District 12 title.
Perhaps Osbourne’s dedication to his craft is borne out of his past frustrations with basketball, his sport of choice. According to his Bachelorette bio, his most embarrassing moment came when he airballed a free throw while playing in a district title game.
Now that’s he’s coached one of those games, perhaps that’s in the past? Bachelorette Andi Dorfman’s guess is as good as ours.
